Snowy Garden DoilyDesigned By Julie A. Bolduc
This doily can be completed in an evening and would make a great last minute gift to give someone at any holiday or birthday. The way the doily is put together, is to make the center motif first. Then make 1 motif at a time up to the 4th round, attaching each motif to the doily as you work. I first designed this doily back in 1994 for Workbasket Magazine but they did not publish it so their loss is your gain. Hope you like it. You can also use the motifs in this doily as snowflake ornaments!

Work the next 6 motifs the same way but when you get to the 5th rnd, do the foll in the ch3 lp corners. (Dc, ch2, dc, ch2, slst to the ch4 lp of another motif, ch2, dc, ch2, dc)
Follow diagram for the sequence for putting the doily together. Fasten off after each motif has been joined and weave the ends into the work before going onto the next motif.
Blocking: After the doily is complete, lay a dish towel onto the ironing board to protect the surface from the starch. Lay the doily flat face down on the towel, stretch it into shap. Spray the doily lightly with the starch and with a hot iron, press the doily flat until it is dry. Be careful to keep the iron moving soas to not scorch the doily. Let cool completely before removing the doily from the towel.
